While many businesses understand the potential benefits of digital marketing initiatives, such as building a new website or launching a content marketing strategy, they might not have access to the budget required to make them happen. If you’ve got a project in mind, but aren’t sure how you’d fund it, small business grants could potentially provide the answer you’ve been looking for.
At AsOne, we’re pleased to have recently joined the NEBSF program supporting businesses in the North East and entitling qualifying businesses to up to 40% off the cost of their projects.
Small Business Grants – Fast Track to Success
The North East is fortunate to have access to excellent programs that help businesses grow and we’re proud to be supporting them:
- Northumberland Business Service, NBSL – Since 2007 NBSL has provided support or funding to businesses in the North East, including helping over 1700 people start up with small business grants. They have a team of full-time Business Support Managers and Funding Advisors tasked with helping local companies grow. The range of NBSL programs includes:
- The Club, an opportunity to network with like-minded owners and get expert advice on topics such as digital marketing and GDPR.
- Enterprise Support Northumberland, free advice and workshops with specially trained business advisors to support people looking to launch their own businesses.
- North East Business Support Fund, NEBSF – Using funds from the EU European Regional Development Fund, NEBSF has already helped over 2500 businesses in the North East. Operating in Local Authorities across the North East area, the fund offers specialist masterclasses on topics like social media and growth planning, as well as grants for business improvement projects. The small business grants can be used for virtually any initiative that will help your business grow. To be eligible for these grants your business must be based in “Northumberland, Tyne and Wear or County Durham with plans to grow turnover and/or employ more staff”.
